News Channel 25 will be airing ABC’s new live singing competition, Rising Star, which premieres Sunday, June 22, at 8 p.m. As a part of the competition, viewers will have to use an app to vote for their favorite "Rising Star."
Here is how the voting app works:
· To vote for your favorite contestants, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Market Place, or the Google Play Store.
· The App is essential to participate in the voting process, but it’s totally FREE and easy to use.
· Just register with your Facebook or Twitter account, and you’re ready to go.
· Before each performance, you’ll be asked to check-in, and then when it’s time to vote, swipe BLUE (to the right) to vote YES or RED (to the left) to vote NO.
· You’ll see the results of the vote in REAL TIME on television – even if you are on the West Coast.
· In just seconds, your votes determine whether the wall rises, whether a contestant moves on or goes home, or if you’re on the West Coast, whether a lucky contestant gets a second chance.
· And IF you give us permission through the app, you might also see your Facebook or Twitter profile picture on the Rising Star wall.
